The Sheridan PGP2 has proven its value in tournament after tournament and has built a rugged reputation at paintball fields across the country. With its solid brass construction, dual fiberoptic sights and heavyweight feel, there's no mystery to the PGP2's popularity. Known to many as the most reliable back-up marker ever issued, this is one tough performer.
The Sheridan PGP2 is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
other pump markers, maverk etc, sidearms, pt pro, in comparison with a maverik or a spyder, the pgp definatly lacks range because of the shorter barrel, but is an equal in range of the pt pro. however the accuracy of the pgp as well as reliablity blows away any of these markers.
custom grips (black sticky) by PMI
none unless you want fatter grips, the standard wooden are great too.
this is an awsome product because it will never break, (at least not for me yet) and i have shot it consistantly for the period i owned it, and i bought it about 6 months old usued from another person.
The other phanomal thing is the accuracy of this marker, it hits the target every time.
its kinda heavy, i think this is a plus tho, i find it easier to keep it steady
great for stock play, which might i add in my humble opinion is alot more fun then semi play
shoots about as fast as you want it to, it can break 300fps on a warm day
you need to oil the gun alot for it to work in peak condition
the range is not that of a regular marker, but that is to be expected because of the fact its a sidearm
This Marker is an all around great product, you cant go wrong with a pgp weither for stock play, or as a sidearm at the feild if you are considering buying one, i suggest it you wont regret it
You may want to get the holster because it just looks cool.
Very accurate gun. Fairly effecent on 12 grams. It makes an awsome stock class gun or sidearm. It will definatly prove handy when you run low on paint. Plus it is very tough. You dont have to worry about breaking this baby.
It breaks a ton of balls at first. You have to soak it in oil. Plus you have to pull back all the way when you pump. Or you'll have a break.
Overall a good stock or side arm gun. I wouldn't reccomend it for a primary gun unless your playing others pumps only. Yet in a squeeze it can still save you from a fancy elctro.
The marker I use is of course the angel! I also use the sheridan marker for my hopper and to get the cleaning objects!
I recommend an electris hopper and otha then that nothing! This gun does not need to be upgraded for how good it is!
What is good about this gun. Its scope is built in and this gun is as accurate as any gun can be.Nothing is better then the PGP2. When I go paintballing i must be hitting people from 6o feet away right on target! the head! lol When playing wit this gun i reccomend u use a regular gun outside of the arena because this gun is just to good.
For me there is nothing bad about this gun but cleaning it is a pain! If beginners get this gun u should be ready to go to the tournaments otherwise if u just use this gun for mischief your dumb!
My cocnclusion is that this gun is accurate and for all the people who are veterans ao pros at paintballing they should get this but no rookies!lol When using this gun u should get two so you can almost shoott people better and this guns barrel is very good at not busting the balls With this gun u must be specific with the paintballs.
Spyder compact 2000 java edition with a 15" winforce barrel an expansion chamber and rear cocking
nothing really if there even is anything you could do to it anyway
it is very accurate i actually hit someone running from about 50 feet it was a sweet shot the gun performs very well and i have had no trouble from it at all plus it even proved itself by taking out at least 5 or more people with semis any time that i point to hit something it is there with no problems at all personally i think it is the best stock class low priced gun i have ever used and i would even trust it with no other gun with me out on the field if you are looking for a great back-up gun with many capabilities i would highly recomend the sheridan pgp2 without a doubt
i have had very little trouble from the pgp2 but it is sort of picky on types of paint that you use in it pretty muh if you didnt buy the paint in a store that sells only paintball stuff then the balls will probably bust in the barrel. clening out the magazine is sorta challenging too
it is a great gun that with the right person behind the trigger could take just about anybody out with no problems just be sure of whether or not you will hit them because it is not the gun you want against someone with a full auto but don't get me wrong it rules the field if you are good at sneaking up on people
I think it would be really cool to have a holster for it.
It looks extremely cool
It's pretty small
It's accurate. Scratch that, it is almost disgustingly accurate. It simply shoots into the exact spot you point it at.
It is good on CO2
If you understand what it means to have a PGP, you will notice there is really nothing that goes wrong with them. They have been perfected over years and years of use. Inherently, they will break a ball here and there for the first two times you use it, but after that it never does it again. I don't understand it but I'm not complaining!
Oil it. Keep it clean. Follow the directions in the instruction pamphlet. Sleep with it under your pillow. Get to know your PGP2 as it will become one of the closest companions you will have on the field.
Original PGP, just about every paintball gun known to exist
Currently a Tippmann Prolite with a 12" Lapco Barrel, but used to own Cockers, Mags, AT85s, ect.
Holster, trigger shoe, PMI rubber grips
Although the original PGP was an exellent gun, this new version is far superior. The addition of a velocity adjuster, speed loader, longer barrel, and actual sights, makes for a fantastic shooting pistol. Sheridan swaped out the old bolt with a cut down version that was found on the old Piranha pump guns. It has a lock on it so that the pump doesn't kick back when you fire it. ANother nice feature of this new bolt is that when you take it apart, you don't shoot bearings all over the place. The quick strip feature is nice. I had to send my old piranha to palmer to have that done to it, and this comes with it now. I played a friend 1 on 1 with pistols, he used a semi Side Kick, and I used the PGP2. We only used what the guns could carry, and we were playing in an old building. Ranges were around 20-40 feet from each other, and I shot him 3 times. I'm not saying that the gun turned me into a paintball madman, but the fact that it is so comfortable and accurate allowed for me to make the shots that I would not have been able to make with an older PGP. Those day glow sights actually work.
There was over spray in the barrel. This is easily fixed buy having the barrel honed out by a shop or an airsmith.
The speed load seems to catch balls, so instead of being like the older PGP of pumping and rocking back for a ball to fall into the breech, its now more like a rock back, then forward for the ball to drop. Not really bad, just different. I will have to get used to that, or look at correcting the problem somehow.
This is an excellent back up piece, Sheridan really did their homework on this and it shows. I wish there was a place to play stock with it. Until then, I will be alot happier knowing that it is riding in my holster and is there if I need it. (or if I can talk my buddys into using only pistols) :-)
If you are looking for a reliable back up or a gun for stock play, this is it.
If you play rec ball or are a scenario game fan, try building a supressor (e-mail me and I will tell you how I made mine)
To start with this gun is very reliable. Just about any abuse you give the gun it will still work first shot every time. Secondly the thing is as accurate as you can hope for from a pistol (more accurate than an off the shelf spider and most stock retail guns even). Its extended barrel seems to give it an accuracy advantage over the original PGP. The new PGP is also extremely easy to reload. It comes stock with a quick change for your 12 gram and reloding paint is simply a matter of pulling on the back section of the feed tube, tilding the gun foreward, and dumping in the 12 gram. Field stripping is easier now too and requires no tools (simply pop out the cocking rod pull the bolt back, twist, and pull some more). The sights on the gun are also a plus as they are a fairly surefire way to make an accurate "snipe" shot.
I only have one real complaint about the gun and it is the back section of the feed tube is made out of plastic and really makes the gun feel cheap. Aside from that I can't really say anything abad about this gun.
If you are looking for a reliable backup marker, or just want to experience the thrill of playing with a stock gun, go and buy a PGP2. Its accurate, quick to reload, and very dependable. It did lose a point because of the plastic back section but I have yet to break it so it seems rugged enough
This is a great pump marker. It's well made and will last for a very long time. Shoots well after tinkering with the velocity some. What I love most is how it is so compact. Makes it more versatile and easier to run with. It's easier to pump than its predecessor.
When something broke in mine, we sent it off to the factory to get it fixed. They fixed it for free, but it took them forever to get it back to us.
Overall, a well made marker and very effective in pump games. The holster was a great Idea for it as well.
-Good gas efficiency
-Somewhat heavy for its size
-Requires A LOT of oil lest you have tons of ball breaks.
The PGP is my weapon of choice in the scenario setting. Its compact size allows it to be kept in a holster, but in times of need the PGP is amazingly accurate and consistent. Not to mention the PGP is near indestructible.
A word of warning - you must feed oil to the PGP like milk to a newborn or you will be plagued by constant ball breaks.
To those who find the PGP2 hard to reload/cock try this:
1) Use better paint. You'll find you have far less problems if you use good quality, small-bore paint in your PGP2 (I use marbalizer - it works great)
2) When you pump the PGP do it HARD, this forces the tip of the barrel up and you will get a clean reload 99%% of the time, I guarantee it. Don't worry about breaking the PGP - pump that sucker like you mean it!

This gun with great 3-point holster system and I&I Sports Stock Harness
No upgrades needed
This thing kicks butt, I play advanced all the time and have long-balled, snap-shot, bunkered, and saved my butt with this gun. Accurate, plenty of great features (velocity adjuster, quick change 12-gram, fiber optic sights, Field Strippable Bolt!) And get the Stock Harness from I&I Sports, has 40 loops for 12-grams and paint tubes.
Nothing bad about it, it is a bit loud but I don't play sniper (except for fun on scenario games occasionally). So nothings bad, use it backup, main gun, or bunker weapon (very cool bunkering a guy when all you have is a PGP, get cover fire from semi-shooting friend though)
I use it because it kicks butt and will definitely save your butt. Great for duels :-)
